Makeup artistry and our natural beauty

Makeup artistry is an interesting topic since it’s very subjective. Of course, there are some rules to follow, but most often you have to adapt those rules to create a look on each individual’s face that you are applying makeup on. That’s where the creativity, and the artist’s individual style, comes into play.

There are also different venues, like theater, where makeup is not only utilized to create the various characters the actors portray, but to be seen in a defined manor from a well lit stage.

On television, and in film, makeup is used to achieve a finished look under different types of lighting that is being used for any given scene.

HDTV has now entered the arena, and though the techniques may remain the same ,there are a few new rules regarding product and application that have makeup artists experimenting with new textures and how the are applied .

My brother, Robb Fischer, is a national cinematographer and  has always said, “With HDTV, what you see is what you get.”   So now there is another issue for the makeup artist to contend with. Think about it! The reality of the large screen and high definition format is not very forgiving. As a result, a more natural approach to makeup application is more important than ever.

I believe we are in the right place at the right time! Most of us don’t have the stress of worrying about our  “on camera” close up shots, but with the new technoogy that is available, we are not only able to look better than ever, but allow “our” natural beauty to take center stage. That has always been my approach to makeup application and goal as a “camera ready” makeup artist.

I look forward to sharing with you what I’ve learned over the years.  I’ve been trying many wonderful new products that are great for your skin , with the newest ingredients, that are not only healthy but actually bring out that youthful beauty that is so desirable. Can’t wait to share them with you!

I hope to bring a confidence to your approach to makeup, and fads that come and go, by teaching you how to adapt them to your individual needs.

Oh yes…. I even have a few tried and true tricks that are easy, fun, quick and effective to look good and feel great about yourself when you “check” yourself in the mirror.

If you have a question you may contact me at , and  please be patient…I will answer questions as quickly as I am able. In fact, let me know what you’re interested in.  It may just be the topic of my next post 🙂  Remember, this is all about empowering  you!   After all!! It’s a GLAM thing!
